Graduation Overview

Graduation, also known as Commencement, is held during the spring semester and if you are planning on graduating, then there are several things you will want to do to prepare ahead of time.

  • First, you should review the Graduation Requirements page. This will give you a good idea where to start the process.
  • Complete the Application for Graduation and pay the fee by the deadline to avoid the late fee.

NOTE: If you do not want to attend the commencement ceremony, you still have to go through these steps to graduate.


Graduation Fair

If you plan on attending commencement, then you do NOT want to miss the Graduation Fair. The Graduation Fair is held a few weeks before commencement. Here, you can pick up your graduation regalia, get information about the upcoming commencement and get graduation portraits.


Graduation Rehearsal

The Graduation Rehearsal is usually held the day before commencement. Attending this will give you an idea of how commencement works. Rehearsal will make you much more comfortable and prepare you for your BIG day.



Floral and balloon arrangements will be available for purchase in the Davidow Lobby throughout commencement.
